Research Statement

My specialty is condensed matter theory. My current interest is in optical control of electron spins in semiconductor nanostructures, for quantum information processing and spintronics. My overall interest is in many-body theory in solids, especially the density functional theory, the electron-phonon effects and the many-body contribution to optical properties in semiconductors.The current and past research topics include: (Please click on a topic to see a brief description and a selection of papers.)
